Thought of the Day !!

My dear brothers and sisters, how can you claim that you have faith in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ if you favor some people more than others? 
                              James 2:1(NLT)

Sometimes we can tend to forget this.  We place good-looking famous actors and actresses on a pedestal.  We give honor and glory to the athlete in the Reebock or Nike commercial.  We look up to the rich and powerful people like Bill Gates and Warren Buffet because of their billions (and who doesn't want Donald Trump's hair haha).  

But these are the ones we most likely will never meet.  Others around us may be given certain honor or favor because of who their family is...how popular or attractive they are...how much money they have...how they're able to influence our future in one way or another.  And sometimes we need the reminder of James not to give favor to these over those who have less.

The fact is…this world honors the rich, famous and powerful people because much of the rest of the world wishes to be like them.  But God places honor in another place all together.  He honors those who will give up the limelight to minister to the poor.  

In the love of Christ,


greg

Mom's newest nurse has such a heart for the less fortunate. She inspired me with Friday with ideas and projects she was blessed to work on.
